“Like New England in the wine country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

This was a delightful stay! Really enjoyed the complimentary wine / hors d'oeuvers and desserts . Breakfast was very nice. Rooms clean and very spacious! Staff was great and took care of all our needs. We would stay again on our next trip to the area. Well worth the price.

We have had the privilege of staying at the Santa Ynez Inn more than once and it is always a wonderful experience. Great breakfasts, service and beautiful rooms. It has never disappointed. It is luxury at it's best.

There is not much more to say, that hasn't already been said. We have stayed here more than several times and have always had an incredible experience. We are foodies and always enjoy the meals that are served. The breakfast is always extremely well prepared. Make sure you try the homemade granola mix. Their desserts are always a surprise and out of the ordinary. The rooms are gorgeous. I would love to have my bedrooms fashioned just like them. The service is top notch. For the person knocking the Inn down points for not having a valet....this is a bed and breakfast. They don't usually have valets. However, when you check in, they will always ask if you would like help with your bags. This means that they will go get them from your car. The Inn will always be our haven.

We had a rare opportunity to take a romantic stay in the Santa Ynez Valley. Of all the things we could have done or places we could have stayed we chose the Santa Ynez Inn. We had stayed there a few years ago and were excited to go back. We had great memories from the previous visit and had hoped this time around would be the same and it was! We strolled through the quaint garden area and enjoyed some quiet time before walking down the street to eat at a wonderful Italian restaurant. The Inn is just such a luxurious place that we came back early just so we could enjoy the room itself. Stunning Victorian style, huge bathroom with a whirlpool tub, and a lovely fireplace kept us lingering in the room. Breakfast is way better than anything you can get at the nearby restaurants--totally gourmet. Hands down the best place to stay in the Santa Ynez Valley.

Room Tip: Not a traditional quaint, kitschy bed and breakfast if that's what you are looking for. Instead...

The Inn is a truly beautiful, well appointed, gracious hotel. The service is wonderful and the staff very accommodating. The rooms are decorated in a Victorian style and the furniture is stunning. Our room had a big jacuzzi tub and a steam shower. The breakfast was awesome, I missed the wine and cheese but the evening desserts was unique.
The only slight negatives were the views aren't great and the beds a little hard. However, I would recommend this to anyone who wants an elegant and relaxing weekend.

Room Tip: If you like a tub, get the room with the jacuzzi tub!

We spent 3 night in a deluxe king room as part of our honeymoon. Beautiful room, VERY big bathroom with a large shower cabin and a whirlpool tub. Comfy bed and quiet rooms, even though our room windows were directly above the hotel entrance.

Breakfast was made to order. They had 2 specials each day, but were open to modifications and off the menu orders. Wine hour and appetizers are nice and dessert hour is a treat:)

Small fitness room downstairs with a treadmill, elliptical and a stationary bike. They also have 2 rooms in the same area for massages/treatments you can arrange for with the reception. We took advantage of that and got very nice massages.

Reception staff is extremely helpful. They've made all of our dinner reservations and arranged for private wine tastings. They really set themselves apart with superb customer service. Great stay, we will be back!!

Book early. If there is no available online, call the hotel directly. When I booked our room, only standard king rooms were available online. I added a note saying that I would like to upgrade if a larger room becomes available and got a call right away from hotel staff saying that they had a deluxe king room available and processed the upgrade over the phone.
